State Highway Department Building – Allentown PA

Description

Referring to projects accomplished by the Public Works Administration, The Indiana Gazette writes in 1937: “Five combination garage and office buildings at Allentown, Carlisle, New Castle, Bedford and Greensburg, have been built for the State Highway Department. These modern structures will house the road equipment used by the Highway Department and will provide adequate office space for its maintenance forces.”

This building, identified by Lehigh County assessment details as being constructed during the 1930s, is still being used by the Transportation Department (now PennDOT).
